are going to send federal employees from the f.b.i., a.t.f., other agencies, to make sure we can protect america. we extend our sympathies, of course, to all the victims and their families, we express our concern -- mr. cummings: i yield a minute and a half. mr. hoyer: express our sympathies to all of them. and we recognize they have employees at the municipal, boston, around this country, the state level and yes at the federal level, who are going to try to respond and make sure america's safe. let's send a message to those federal employees, because they're our employees, that we respect them, their contribution and let us not bring a bill to the floor and by the way, the gentleman is correct, it passed, not with my vote last year, because i thought it was a message that was incorrect. and i thought there are processes in place today which allow us to act against those who are tax delinquents. but frankly, this isn't a discussion about huge tax delinquents, huge tax frauds, people who are not paying taxes to this country in which they are being so successful. so, mr. speaker, first of
